Travel Challenge: A week in Madeira

Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for specific holiday. Today: a summer break on the Portuguese island of Madeira. Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together. Each includes a week's accommodation and flights from Gatwick to the capital Funchal in the second week of July.
